Moulage in SimulationPROGRAM DESCRIPTION:
The concept of using simulated injuries and illnesses or moulage to educate healthcare practitioners is not new but its use is expanding. The Program begins with a background of moulage, casualty simulation and makeup. A discussion of the history of moulage will show the evolution of the method. The use of moulage in a simulation scenario is limited only by the scenario developer’s imagination. Care must be taken however to keep this imagination from running wild.

Registered Nurses, Physician Assistants, Academic Nursing Faculty, Simulation Lab Coordinators, and Healthcare Professionals interested in moulage for simulation.
